Obama Health Care Supreme Court
August 14, 2011 by USA Post
Obama Health Care Supreme Court, Now that the appellate courts have made various statements to compete in the Obama plan for health care, it seems more likely than ever that their fate will be decided by the U.S. Supreme Court.
The only question is whether the judges of the highest court decide a case of health before or after the 2012 elections a year from November.
The Supreme Court could also hear the case before the election, and the government later.
On 11 U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Friday that the administration and Congress exceeded its authority by requiring most Americans to buy health insurance or face a financial penalty – the so-called “individual mandate” that is the key to the financing of the health care plan.
In June, however, an appeals court based in Cincinnati upheld the individual mandate – a point the White House made quickly after the reversal on Friday in Atlanta.
Posted on the website of the White House, White House senior adviser Stephanie Cutter said that the mandate is constitutional because “people who choose to go without health insurance are making a business decision that affects us all – when uninsured receive health care who can not afford to, those with insurance and taxpayers are often left paying the bill. ”
Critics of the health care plan Obama said Friday’s ruling is another example of what the House of Representatives John Boehner, R-Ohio, called “the inevitable demise of the law.”
“Americans should have access to health coverage that is right for them and their families will not be penalized for not buying a plan designed by Washington,” Boehner said.
The conflicting decisions of appeals court is likely to accelerate the case to the Supreme Court, whereanlysts are already disabled its possibilities.
The two appointed by Obama – Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan – is likely to join Bill Clinton appointed Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Stephen Breyer in support of the law.
The court’s conservative bloc – Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito – we look askance at the government’s individual mandate.
That leaves a justice who often decides close cases: Reagan appointed Anthony Kennedy.
